I had a bersa .380 for years, it was an accurate and reliable weapon they do have more weight than most out there now, i believe it was sixgun shorty that used to tout the rohrbaugh guns, they are well made but on the higher priced side

Remington bought out Rohrbaugh for the rights to the design. I am real glad they did. Wonderful little shooter.

All this talk about Sig 238's inspired me to take mine out to the range - a quick trip, given the cold.

 

But enough to remind me that the top edges of the magazine are sharp little devils, and if you don't want to slice off your thumb tips while reloading, think about either a little file/stone work or a Baby UpLula.

 

I really like this pistol.

 

Took your hints and ordered a Sneaky Pete holster, as well as a couple of spare magazines.

I carried a Colt Mustang for years .

Loved the little 1911 design 380 .

BUT !

Carrying a Pistol cocked and locked in my front pocket pointed at my junk never set good with me .

I'm a 1911 fan boy and always will be .

I just did not care for cocked and locked in my front pocket.

 

I settled on  the  S&W MP Bodyguard with Tritium  Big dot sights .

( No Laser ) 380 for pocket carry .

Long hard trigger pull and NO cocked and locked .

No safety to switch off after pulling out of the pocket .

 

And a true double action like a revolver .

With practice its a very accurate pistol .

And with in legal shooting distance , She is deadly accurate .

 

I owned  several 380 over the years  including the Mustang , LCP original and LCP ll , Keltec , Bersa Thunder ,

Berretta  Cheetah  ,PPK and a Makarov .

All are good guns .

 

But out of them all .

I prefer the S&W MP Bodyguard for pocket carry .

For what it's worth I never carry in a pocket. Only in a well designed holster that I practice with.

Quick visual comparison... my LC380 and the Kid's P238.

 

Although smaller, the Sig (stainless frame HD* model) weighs in about three ounces heavier than the Ruger ~ but it feels good.  It's significantly more solid feeling, very comfortable, shoots well...  and the tritium "SIGLITE Night Sights" are terrific!  :)

 

*The alloy framed models are about five ounces lighter - 15.2 vs 20.5.  That might be a deciding factor for some - I personally prefer the heavier version, but that's just me.. and it's still lighter than a PPK.

Howdy Hardpan,

Did you try alloy vs steel shooting side by side?

I guess I could buy both and sell the one I don't like?????????????????????

Carried a Ruger LCP for awhile, it fit perfectly in the hip pocket of my wranglers. Accuracy was acceptable out to 25 feet, hurt to shoot it esp. with +p . No fun for plinking. Don't care for the .380 round but any gun is better than no gun. Switched to a Kimber 9 mm with an iwb tuckable holster. Much better. bit more trouble to put on, but not a lot.
